Keep hens in your garden as well as growing vegetables, herbs, flowers and shrubs.

Find out about the best hens for you to have in your garden. Housing, feeding and all aspects of caring for your hens are covered with sections on cockerels, eggs and egg laying, broody hens, hatching chicks, pests, problems and predators. Frequently asked questions conclude the section on hens. The second part of the book gives advice about the best vegetables and herbs to grow. You will discover which vegetables and plants you must protect from your hens and the ones that your hens will happily avoid.

In no time at all you can become self sufficient in eggs and vegetables. Your hens can be self sufficient as well – why not grow some vegetables that both you and your hens can enjoy, use the poultry droppings in your compost, keep all the eggs you need for the household, sell a few to your neighbours and the money you make can be spent on poultry feed.

The book ends with an account on keeping hens on a smallholding in the 1930s and 40s, using extracts from the memoirs of my Great Aunt, May Wedderburn Cannan who was a published First World War poet.

The book is illustrated with line drawings and a section of colour photos

  Great - beautifully written!  A really useful book which not only lists all veg that can successfully be grown alongside chickens, but also details their care. Lovely extracts from a war diary by a lady who kept chickens during rationing.    -
